Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Outstanding Service!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
Our group truly enjoyed our stay at The Holiday Inn in San Marcos on Barnes Avenue. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and well organized. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable and breakfast delicious. The hotel is very close to the premium malls,and two stores, J.C. Penney's and Bealls, are within walking distance from the hotel. Overall, this hotel was new, modern,and very "user friendly". We will definitely stay there again!
